Day 2: Central Island Excursion
Full day excursion on the Central Island. The Central Island, also known as Crocodile Island, is the gem of Lake Turkana. The Volcanic Island emerges starkly from the blue-green waters of the largest desert lake in the world. The Central Island is made up of three active volcanoes that belch sulphurous smoke and steam. The 3 crater lakes; Crocodile Lake, Flamingo Lake and Tilapia Lake, provide breeding grounds for the world’s largest concentration of Nile crocodiles. Central Island has a campsite where visitors can enjoy the beautifully haunting sight of the lake’s luminous waters wash up onto a black lava beach while the moon rises over the menacingly smoking craters.
Evening sundowner/cultural visit from the Turkana villages.
